Jeremy Clarkson Claims He Is ‘Plankton About To Be Eaten By A Whale’

BBC Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has caused something of a media storm over the past couple of weeks after he was suspended from the hit TV show. Mr. Clarkson was suspended after he allegedly assaulted Oisin Tymon, one of the shows producers, during a row over what he wanted for dinner. Clarkson is also alleged to have been racially abusive to Mr. Tymon, calling him a “lazy Irish c**t.”

In the wake of the row Top Gear has been taken off air and the public have been divided over Clarkson’s future. Many people believe that Jeremy Clarkson should be sacked as a result of this latest fracas, as he has a history of controversial and racist remarks and he is believed to have been on a final warning from the BBC. Clarkson is a divisive figure and it reported that over one million people have signed an online petition demanding that he be reinstated.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.

    Ah, yes… the debate. It’s a shame he has been such a fantastic presenter over the years. He really has. But the long and short of it is that talent does not excuse abusive behaviour. He deserves to be sacked… but we will miss his wit. (For the record, my daughter attended a taping last month and was standing in the front row where all the “pretty” people are allowed to stad – haha!) MH

      I feel exactly the same. I always sort of liked clarkson even though I have never really watched top gear. I have no interest in cars and hate motor sport 😃

      I do think Mr clarkson has gone too far this time and his laddish ways belong in another century.
